March 8 is a day of rejoicing for most women all over the world. It is a day of bonding. Of connecting. Of rejuvenation. Of rediscovery. For CBA President Moneeza Hashmi, it also sees the launch of her own book, Who Am I?
It follows the lives of 20 remarkable Pakistani women – all pioneers and agents of social change. Written from the perspective of her own career as a leading figure in broadcasting, Moneeza Hashmi has documented the feminist movement of Pakistan.
She said: “We broadcasters have a responsibility to take messages of hope across the world and share a collective global vision of a world free of discrimination and based on equality for all. March 8th is such a day. To regroup. To rejoice. To reinforce. To move together in one rhythm. One beat. One chord.”
Happy International Women’s Day!
